Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen blood vessels that have a ropey appearance. They normally occur in the legs and are visible through the skin.

Varicose veins can develop when tiny valves inside the veins fail to function properly. These valves help ensure that the blood is returned to the heart and refilled with oxygen.

When veins become damaged or diseased, the valve can fail to make the blood flow back down into the extremities where it pools, causing problems.

Spider veins are smaller than varicose veins and have a blue, red, or purple tint. They also have a twisted appearance that can be seen through the skin, typically on the face and legs.

Spider veins can be caused by a number of factors ranging from it being a hereditary condition to hormonal problems that arise during puberty, pregnancy or menopause. They might be a problem for those who are overweight or obese as well.

To fight those pesky spider veins, there is the VeinGogh treatment.

What is VeinGogh

VeinGogh is an easy, reliable method of treating unsightly problems such as spider veins, and usually involves less discomfort than treatments used in the past.

VeinGogh provides outstanding results with its unique Microburst Technology. This method creates a controlled heating that causes very little discomfort or damage to surrounding tissues.

How does VeinGogh work?

VeinGogh is unique in using Ohmic Thermolysis. This process thermo-coagulates unsightly blood vessels with high-frequency, electrical energy delivered in microbursts to the vessel by way of an extremely thin probe.

Blood vessel resistance converts this energy instantly into heat, which thickens the blood and collapses it, leaving outer skin layers intact and undamaged.

In comparison to other types of similar devices, the vessel is heated longer, which allows VeinGogh to treat vessels and avoid damaging surrounding tissues.

VeinGogh is unique in utilizing Microburst Technology — a cutting edge frequency laser that can controllably heat vessels without causing damage to healthy, surrounding tissue.

Microburst Technology offers greater control while minimizing damage risks and delivering consistent results.

VeinGogh treatment duration depends upon the size of the area to be treated. You will be able to see continuous improvement over the course of several weeks as the old, damaged vessels are reabsorbed by your body.

VeinGogh treatments may be most effective in treating spider veins up to 0.3 mm in size. It isn’t designed for the treatment of large vessels that are far beneath the surface of the skin.

A few treatments may be needed, depending upon how severe the spider veins are.
